Hi there

I too have pcos and was advised to lose about 8kg. I went on a low gi diet in October, had lost 7 kg by December and I have just discovered I am pregnant!

Best thing I ever did!

There are plenty of gi books or recipes online - for pcos sufferers it is essential to balance blood sugar

Also give up alcohol - it is simply like drinking glucose!

Follow low carb. No processed food. No pasta. No bread. Very little fruit. Vegetables, meat, protein, salads.

I dropped nearly four stone with pcos in all.
